1 CEOS-CGMS Working Group Climate, Darmstadt, Germany, 5-7 March 2014 Coordination Group for Meteorological Satellites - CGMS COORDINATION GROUP FOR METEOROLOGICAL SATELLITES CGMS Organization and Climate Actions presented by Jörg Schulz EUMETSAT

2 CEOS-CGMS Working Group Climate, Darmstadt, Germany, 5-7 March 2014 Coordination Group for Meteorological Satellites - CGMS The Coordination on Geostationary Meteorological Satellites was initially created in 1972 to consider common interests relating to the design, operation and use of planned meteorological satellites. The name was later changed to the Coordination Group for Meteorological Satellites to include low-Earth orbit satellites and the activities are governed by a Charter. The CGMS meets in plenary session on an annual basis following meetings of four Working Groups on telecommunication, satellite data and products, operational continuity and contingency planning, and global data dissemination respectively. CGMS: Members are those organisations and space agencies that are current and prospective developers and operators of meteorological satellites ; Space agencies operating R&D satellites contributing to WMO programmes; WMO, because of its unique role as representative of the world meteorological data user community. Current members: CMA, CNES, CNSA, ESA, EUMETSAT (CGMS Secretariat since 1987), IMD, IOC/UNESCO, JAXA, JMA, KMA, NASA, NOAA, ROSCOSMOS, ROSHYDROMET, and WMO Members:

3 CEOS-CGMS Working Group Climate, Darmstadt, Germany, 5-7 March 2014 Coordination Group for Meteorological Satellites - CGMS 40 years of CGMS Achievements ( ) The list of achievements includes climate relevant items: Establishment of a global baseline for geostationary coverage Establishment of a global back-up framework/contingency planning (“help thy neighbour”) Optimisation of the Global Observing System (GOS) and response to the WMO Vision for the space-based GOS in 2025 Development of a coordinated approach to calibration and inter- calibration (GSICS)GSICS Promotion and development of a coordinated framework for generating climate data records from space observations (SCOPE-CM)SCOPE-CM Development of a framework for improving the quality of sounding products and Atmospheric Motion Vectors Facilitation of a common approach to archiving of data (essential for climate monitoring applications)

4 CEOS-CGMS Working Group Climate, Darmstadt, Germany, 5-7 March 2014 Coordination Group for Meteorological Satellites - CGMS EUM/SIR/VWG/12/0???, v1, 10 July 2012 Slide: 4 Coordination Group for Meteorological Satellites - CGMS  The CGMS high level priority plan ( publications/cgms-high-level-priority-plan pdf?sfvrsn=0 ) has been endorsed by the 40th CGMS plenary meeting in November publications/cgms-high-level-priority-plan pdf?sfvrsn=0 CGMS High Level Priority Plan  This rolling 5-year ( ) plan is seen as part of a longer term perspective, in particular as regards the new challenges raised by climate monitoring in the context of the implementation of the Global Framework for Climate Services.  It will be reviewed on an annual basis, considering in particular new requirements and perspectives arising from interactions with the user and scientific communities, the development of applications, e.g. NWP, and relevant research activities.  It will ensure proper interaction with other space agencies and their relevant constituencies (e.g. CEOS including its working groups and virtual constellations).

5 CEOS-CGMS Working Group Climate, Darmstadt, Germany, 5-7 March 2014 Coordination Group for Meteorological Satellites - CGMS Top-level priority 5.1: Advancing the architecture for climate monitoring from space  « Advancing the Architecture» a major header in CGMS HLPP: – Take an active role in building up the architecture as a contribution to GFCS; – Evaluate the CGMS baseline against the logical view ; – Extend GSICS and SCOPE‐CM; – Analyse long‐term datasets, impact on climate applications; – Establish priorities for multi‐decadal ECV products; – Contribute to creation of key FCDRs supporting many ECVs; – Ensure systematic contribution to the ECV inventory; – Integrated access to climate data records of CGMS members; – Common approach to long‐term data preservation; – Work with CEOS towards sustainable implementation of the architecture.

6 CEOS-CGMS Working Group Climate, Darmstadt, Germany, 5-7 March 2014 Coordination Group for Meteorological Satellites - CGMS CGMS-41 Actions relevant for Climate Action 41.11: “CGMS members to nominate members for the CEOS/CGMS joint climate working group” already closed. Action 41.12: “CGMS Plenary proposes that the CGMS/CEOS joint climate WG establish an inventory of FCDRs including for each one information on: – contributing missions and instruments; – calibration and cross-calibration; – contributing agencies; and reference to ECV/TCDRs which could be extracted. To be done in addition to and in full consistency with the existing ECV- driven inventory of TCDRs. ACTIONEE: CEOS-CGMS WG Climate Action 41.13: “The CEOS/CGMS joint climate working group to report to each CGMS plenary session” ACTIONEE: CEOS-CGMS WG Climate

7 CEOS-CGMS Working Group Climate, Darmstadt, Germany, 5-7 March 2014 Coordination Group for Meteorological Satellites - CGMS Message Thus far CGMS has treated climate activities rather ad hoc; CGMS-41 plenary has decided that climate related actions shall be developed as part of WG Climate; Thus, we need to make sure that the open actions can become part of the work plan of the joint WG Climate; This would enable formal closure as CGMS-only actions.
